think the debate is somewhat margin all for the occurrences city. >> do you agree in terms of the marginal impact? >> i do understand where the argument comes from.frankly is of the currency. the problem is two fold. one, we haven't got a counter factual. we sort of have. look at ireland. but without that very dramatic counter factual, it looks like qe is not doing anything. i would argue it's successful at neutralizing the deflationary contraction. but it's hard to read. we have so many other countries doing qe or sending messages about whether they'll stop or accelerate or slow down or might do it that actually looking at currencies that are all relative, it's hard to read this. what we can see is that the dollar was under an stream amount of delusionary pressure during the qe experience with the exceptions where it spiked up during actual panic. the really interesting thing about the euro is the hur row hasn't fallen that much given the fact it's dominated the bad news. and that i would say is because they haven't done the dilution of qe yet. so it's held its own against
